Looking After Your Eyes

Children’s eye tests

Eye Care for Children

During the first 12 years of our lives, up to 80% of our learning is visually based. Many children struggle at school simply because of eyesight related problems, which is why your child should have regular eye tests by a qualified optician. We have to remember that what a child sees is ‘normal’ for them and may not realise that others can see clearer.

There are a few tell-tale signs you can look out for, for example:

• Does your child sit close to the TV?
• Do they rub their eyes repeatedly?
• Do they complain of headaches or blurred vision?
• Do they squint?
